WHEN DUTY CALLS

Posted by HG on July 13, 2007

Sorry for the lack of posts. I been caught up in the world, some business, some pleasure, but I still should’ve done a better job of keeping up. I let a number of things slip by that I wanted to talk about, and I had some videos for y’all to check out. I don’t wanna make any excuses cause like I said, some of it’s been pleasure, so I been slackin.

If I had been on my game I woulda had a post about the All-Star game. I woulda mentioned how the only thing missing from the 4 hour pre-game show was Willie Mays’ son threatening to turn his pops into a fudgesicle. I thought the game was all right, and in the 9th inning when LaRussa didn’t put Pujols in, I knew where Tony was coming from. Just a few weeks ago when the Angels played the Cardinals, Rodriguez had Pujols looking silly. And I’m a Cards fan.

This clip was in honor of Ichiro winning the MVP.

I’m still trying to figure out why Ichiro needed an interpreter for the post game interview.

THANK YOU JACKIE ROBINSON

Posted by HG on June 22, 2007

There are not enough keys on the board for me to type about the contributions Jackie Robinson made not only to baseball, but to the United States. Jackie was a braver and better man than I could ever claim to be, and I would like to see him get more recognition.

Speaking of recognition.. There was no mention of Willie Mays, Reggie Jackson, or Barry Bonds in the video. How does Willie Mays not get a shout out? I gotta assume Barry didn’t get one because they didn’t want to attach any controversy to such a worthy cause. I’m glad everybody’s thanking Jackie, but keep in mind, he’s the guy responsible for Elijah Dukes too.

RAPPING UP SPORTS IN THE LATE SIXTIES

Posted by HG on June 4, 2007

In the wrong hands, rap is a bad and dangerous thing. If you don’t know anything about sports in the late 60s and you don’t mind lyrics being completely offbeat then this is the video for you.

They’ve got 99 problems and knowing how to rap is about 98 of ’em.
